While upwards of six to seven teams harbour realistic hopes of winning Women's Euro 2022, Republic of Ireland defender Louise Quinn has a feeling that Sweden could potentially be the team to come out on top when all is said and done on 31 July.
The tournament, hosted in England, kicks-off on Wednesday, 6 July and all 31 fixtures will be live on RTÉ television and the RTÉ Player with Quinn among the cast of pundits.
While the Birmingham City defender will be keeping a close eye on Ireland's 1 September opponents Finland in the quest to reach the 2023 World Cup, another team from the Irish qualifying group is one of the foremost contenders for European Championship success.
"I'm going to go Sweden, they're in our (World Cup) group," Quinn told the RTÉ Soccer Podcast of a team Ireland famously drew against away in April.

"I think the quality they have, the loss of the Olympics, I think they just know how to win games.
"It's how they tactically set up and frustrate teams and stop other teams from doing what they do well and then catch them on the break with the speed of players they have up top like (Stina) Blackstenius.
"She's going to be huge and obviously (Fridolina) Rolfo who plays for Barcelona, again key players who they will want to keep fit.
"They have everything, they have strength and speed so I think they're going to be very hard to handle."
In terms of players to watch out for at Euro 2022, Quinn highlighted an England and Manchester City talent.
"She has already made a name for herself in England but Lauren Hemp," she replied when asked to pick out a potential star of the tournament.
"I think I even nominated her twice this year for Young Player of the Year and Player of the Year because you couldn't really pick which one she should or shouldn't have to be honest and she's been incredible in her season this year and then watching (England) play the Netherlands a few days ago, she's just one of the most difficult players to play against.
"I think she's going to be one of the most exciting players that you definitely need to keep an eye out for."
